We don't have any moles so I don't know what I'm looking at but those smaller ones look like our voles.

Looks like about half moles and half voles.

We catch quite a few shrews every year in our Albano traps.

We have switched to Steves traps for 80% of our mole work in the last few years.We still use some O/S and spears for the very shallow runs. I just ordered several dozen more last week.

We have had alot of mole calls in the last few weeks. Should be a busy spring and early summer if it doesnt get to hot too fast to dry things out on the surface. Last year was a bumper year for us on the moles. I think I will stay off the ladders for the most part this year and run mole jobs all year. I will leave the ladder work to the young and the restless.

The pest control guys will use their gummy worms for a while then we will have to go in and clean things up as usual like we do every year. Just more work for us and more expense for the consumer.

With Steve's traps you use two traps per run. one facing each direction.

Aren't all new OOS traps the same? I'm unaware of any modifications to them.

Around here the moles usually make visible raised trails. Today I saw this mound near the middle of a yard with no visible trail leading to it. It wasn't there yesterday. I already got 16 moles in this yard. I poked my finger in the mound. Right away I found the trail leading to it. I set the trail along the edge of the mound. Within an hour I got that mole.

I bought 4 old spike plunger spear type traps from usedtraps com last week. Wow, are they great. It's a shame how the NEW spear type traps on the market these days are such inferior quality. It's a night and day difference in regards to their decline in quality.
